Deputy Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Chief Nixon Biney, on Friday led some Ghanaians to picket the office of Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

The action was in protest against the current economic woes in Ghana.

They were clad in red and black t-shirts branded Ghana Must Work.

The group wielded placards whose inscriptions read Dr Bawumia, where is the dollar you arrested? The country is sinking do something now, Mr President we are suffering, our children are hungry and we are hungry do something Dr Bawumia among others.

The exercise started from Kawukudi through to the 37 Liberation road and finally at the Veep’s office where a Deputy Chief of Staff received a petition from the group on Dr Bawumia’s behalf.

Ghanaians in the past weeks have been expressing their frustration against the government amid the rise of the dollar against the cedi, fuel price hikes, goods and services as well as worsened standard of living.
